After waiting months for the beer to age in the barrel, Full Throttle Bottles has received delivery of the 2009 Deschutes Mirror Mirror. This oak-aged barley wine has been in production at the brewery for more than a year.
The Mirror Mirror is extremely complex with high viscosity and multiple layers of flavor. At only 30 IBU's, it has a rich malt base with hints of raisin and oak tinged with the slightest citrus hop aroma. At 11% Alc. by volume, this is a huge beer.
Mirror Mirror is Deschutes' next release in their Reserve Series, which includes such beers as The Dissident, Black Butte XX, and The Abyss.
The brewery recommends that it be consumed after April 2010. Don't wait until then to buy it, though, this beer may be heavy, but it will move fast!
Full Throttle Bottles is located at: 5909 S. Airport Way, Seattle, WA
